KCET Departures featured this video in the March 8, 2012, Green Justice column, The Baldwin Hills, Black L.A., and Green Justice. The Baldwin Hills is an epicenter of excellence in African American culture across the United States, along with Sugar Hill in Harlem and, now, the White House. Even so, black folks in Baldwin Hills and adjoining South Central Los Angeles have constantly struggled for green justice. The community, which has long suffered from environmental degradation and discrimination, has been fighting to create the two square-mile Baldwin Hills Park.
